Finance and Economic Development Minister, Professor Mthuli Ncube has said the multi-currency system is here to stay while the interbank exchange rate will continue to be fine-tuned. He made the remarks at a press conference held in Harare at the backdrop of rising inflation and workers’ protests over poor salaries and working conditions. 

Some of the points mentioned:

4). Fuel, maize and bread prices – interventions were unveiled to stabilise prices.

Nothing much changed , shows the minister its just self centered and does not cater for the welfare of its citizens, why not increase workers salaries by partly paying them USD and another portion in RTGS, becoz the salary increaments would be eroded by inflation caused by currency depreciation also caused by the black market and the so called auction rate system

I wish to thank Muzvinafundo wemari, Muthuli Ncube, for giving us a brief in changes in salaries and allowances. But is it now government policy of only dealing with salaries and allowances of those workers who will have striked ? In this case you only talked about nurses and teachers who were on work stoppages last week. I understood you, Muzvinafundo wemari, when you said you will continue with partly us$ salaries and allowances and the rest salaries in rtgs. May I remind you Muzvinafundo wemari Muthuli Ncube, that 100% of nothing is nothing.

Its funny you hear comments of someone believing in the 'economic saboteurs' theory so would you for a moment unbiasedly reason that there are opposites of 'economic saboteurs' who would want to offer their services or goods at a profit margin of maybe 0.07-10% and attarct plenty of customers, they are many such willing to do so but it's not sustainable in economics
don't listen to these voodoo economic conspiracy theories
